In this guide, we test and review a few of the best hammock beds for indoor sleeping. In addition, we will go over all of the potential health benefits of using indoor sleeping hammocks and why you should try one out!

Our choice for the best indoor hammock bed is the Hammock Sky Brazilian Double Hammock. Keep reading for a more in-depth review!

Types of Hammocks

  • Chair/Swing Hammocks:- If you’re looking for something a little different, chair hammocks could be a great choice. They hang from the ceiling and combine the comfort of hammocks with the convenience of chairs. They might not make the best beds for every night use but are a great addition to any room or patio.
  • Double Hammocks:- The name “Double Hammock” refers to hammock size. They are capable of supporting two people and generally around 450-475 pounds. Keep in mind, just because a hammock is labeled as a double hammock doesn’t mean it can’t be a Brazilian hammock as well. In fact, most of our top recommended hammock beds are Brazilian Doubles!
  • Brazilian Hammocks:- If you’re looking for a hammock that you can actually sleep in long term, Brazilian hammocks are probably your best bet. Brazilian Hammocks are usually woven from 100% soft cotton, which offers a great combination of comfort and durability. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and are generally the most comfortable type of hammock you can buy.
  • Rope Hammocks:- As the name suggests, rope hammocks are constructed from thick pieces of rope loosely woven together. Since rope hammocks contain “holes”, they can tend to create pressure points, making them a poor choice for nightly hammock beds. That said, rope hammocks make up for durability what they lack in comfort. They are a great choice for outdoor use around beaches/pools and will stand up to a lot of use.

Proven Benefits of Sleeping in a Hammock

You probably wouldn’t know it, but there are TONS of research that proves hammocks are beneficial for your mind and body. Here are 8 reasons that you should ditch your bed for a hammock:

1. Faster, deeper sleep

Have you ever wondered why babies fall asleep with gentle rocking? As scientists from the University of Switzerland found out, our brain waves can actually sync up to slight rocking, helping with relaxation and sleep. In simple terms, we’re all big babies that love to be rocked.

2. Perfect sleeping position

As it turns out, sleeping with your head completely horizontal on a pillow is not the optimal position for human bodies. Hammocks position our head and spine at a slight angle, helping with pain reduction and comfort. No wonder hammocks feel so natural right off the bat!

3. Proven health benefits

A night of deep sleep does wonders for the body. Increased muscle recovery, a stronger immune system, and increased energy are just a few of the proven benefits of quality sleep. Hammocks have been scientifically proven to aid in a night of better, deeper sleep and thus pass along health benefits.

4. Increased concentration & brain function

Like we explained before, sleeping in a hammock helps sync brain waves that relate to memory. Ever wonder why so many people enjoy reading in hammocks? Many users notice a significant difference in concentration, critical thinking, and reading retention when studying in hammocks vs. desks.

5. Elimination of pressure points

Pressure points in beds can do a lot of damage to your back and neck, especially if you tend to sleep in weird positions. When sleeping in a hammock, your body weight is evenly distributed and your neck is aligned at the optimal angle. This elimination of pressure points can help alleviate pain and leaves you feeling refreshed and strong each morning.

6. Decreased stress

Once again, this sort of goes back to your ability to get a good night’s sleep. With the fast-paced nature of life today, a lot of young professionals suffer from anxiety and insomnia. Hammocks are incredibly relaxing and can really help take the stress out of a long day.

7. Decreased back pain

When you first look at a hammock, you probably wouldn’t imagine it being super comfortable. I know I was pretty skeptical. Sometimes they look as though you would be all scrunched up the second you lay down. Boy was I wrong. You will never feel more relaxed and comfortable than you do laying in a hammock. They have an amazing way of eliminating pressure points and alleviating back/joint pain, leaving you refreshed and feeling good.
